DoctorLOS ANGELES (AP) — A San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy killed in a shootout with a man believed to be fugitive former LAPD officer Chris Dorner had gone into the search happy to help his community but wary of the dangers.

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon identified the deputy Wednesday as Jeremiah MacKay, a man who grew up in the area and followed his father into public service.

MacKay suffered multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday and was transported to Loma Linda Hospital where he died of his injuries. He was 35.

MacKay was a detective who had been with the department for 15 years.

He leaves behind a wife, a 7-year-old daughter and a 4-month-old son.
